Songs to Leave Behind
Three of New Zealand’s finest singer songwriters lay their hearts and voices on the line.
Don McGlashan from those iconic bands Blam Blam Blam, The Front Lawn, and The Muttonbirds and still crafting the best of songs; Julia Deans who fronted Fur Patrol and whose voice ranges from honey-sweet to menacing growl; Anna Coddington is one of our heroines of independent pop music.
Asked to think about mortality, they celebrate the power of song in this spell-binding and intimate performance. The first song is the song that turned them on to music. Next a song from a favourite songwriter. Then the song they wished they had written, a song or two of their own, and finishing with the song they wish to leave behind and be remembered by.
